3 Easy Tips to Making Beautiful Pies
Baking a beautiful pie doesn’t have to be hard. With just a few simple techniques, you will be making pies that look almost too good to eat!
My mom is the “Pie Queen” in our family and has taught me almost everything I know about cooking and baking. On Thanksgiving, she makes every pie you can think of: apple, pumpkin, pecan, blueberry, lemon, chocolate and on and on. Coming from a big Italian family, we even have other pies we make during the year, like Italian wheat pies, meat pies, ricotta and spinach pies. No matter what Mom bakes, the pies always look as beautiful as they taste.
I still like to carry out all the old traditions my mom has passed onto me, but, in my modern busy lifestyle, I take some shortcuts. With Pillsbury Pie® Crust, I can prepare all the same perfect pies as Mom but in half the time. To make my traditional pies extra special, I have added some personal pie-making touches of my own, like using pie top cutters and Betty Crocker® gel food coloring.
